I am really picky about shoes. Like hyper picky. In my opinion, someone can be wearing a super-cute outfit and if their shoes aren't that great, it ruins the whole thing. Not to mention, I believe you can easily distinguish between the trendy and the truly stylish by their footwear.

Now I am partially biased because I went to high school with the very talented co-founder of shoe brand Marais USA, Haley Boyd, but even if I didn't, I would still covet everything she and co-founder Catherine Chen create. Truth be told, their brand is a dangerous one to be a fan of because all of the styles are effortlessly chic, incredibly versatile, and affordably priced. When it comes to shoes, that's one pretty powerful trifecta.

Marais USA recently released its new spring line and from the moment I spied the offerings, I knew I would have a hard time selecting just one pair. (What will be easy, however, is deciding which polish to wear with my new purchase.) After much debate, I've finally narrowed down my shoe wish list and picked a lacquer to compliment each choice. Which pair do you think I should buy? Do you ever consider how your polish compliments your footwear?

When your nails get more sun exposure in the spring and summer, be sure to properly protect them from harmful UV rays.
